HAPPY CLIENT

Everything has gone great on the 1970 Dodge Charger RT.  Once the transport dropped it off, we are getting it ready to ship to Sweden and the buyer in Sweden is so excited and he can’t wait to get it.  Thank you for your help in making this transaction possible.  We have other international buyers looking for all kinds of vehicles, so let’s stay in touch.  Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with you.

Hey Jim, I got the ’70 SS 454 yesterday.  It made the trip on the transporter just perfect.  It has been raining so I haven’t been able to get it out to drive yet, but hopefully tomorrow.  It is a beautiful car and some of my neighbors and friends can’t quit talking about it.  Thanks for your hospitality when I flew down to look at the car.  I am glad it was like you said and I think we both ended up pleased.  I definitely will refer you if any of my friends are looking for a classic car.  Thanks again.  JS, MA

Hello Mr. Lowrey:  I wanted to tell you the ’77 Corvette made it home safely.  I know you were a little concerned about driving it this far, but I had no problems at all.  It turned heads all the way home.  My buddies are “jealous”.  Thank you again for being honest about the car and I know I will enjoy it for a long time.  RT, MS

Ann from Cincinnati says:

I worked with Jim to buy a Porsche 911 Cabriolet; I’d been looking for a Cabriolet in great condition for about a year and contacted Jim. Working with him via text, email and phone was simple and streamlined plus he’s a very interesting guy who is genuinely passionate about cars and about a straight forward sales process. I’d never purchased a car sight-unseen from an out of state seller — so I had some reservations, however Jim said all the right things, produced all the right support and responded quickly. The entire process took less time than I originally thought it might and the car exceeded my expectations. Thank you again, Ann (Cincinnati, Ohio)

Air | Water: Luftgekült’s Second Act

Last weekend marked the 9th Luftgekült show, and this time around it was held back on my home turf – the San Francisco Bay Area – for the first time since its inception in 2014.

Trevor covered day one, and if you haven’t had a chance to check that out, I’d definitely recommend having a look and bringing yourself up to speed with Saturday’s curation. On Sunday, Mare Island transformed into Luft’s brand new second act: Air | Water.

For the first time, Luftgekült’s founders Patrick Long and Jeff Zwart extended the event out to a two-day affair – air-cooled only on Saturday, and the new combination air-cooled plus water-cooled on Sunday to bring a whole new spectrum of Porsches into the Luft fold.

I feel like it’s been a long time coming, considering no one else has done anything like this. And it ultimately creates a diverse gathering that highlights significant cars from Porsche’s entire model line-up, not just the 911.

From a personal standpoint, I wasn’t sure what Air | Water was going to be like, but my expectations were high since the two main people in charge have earned their reputations for their strong curation skills.

On one hand, I felt that the charm of Luftgekült and what made it special to begin with was the exclusivity towards celebrating the old and historical cars that come from Porsche and its deep roots in aviation, which is where air-cooled engines kind of originated. But on the other hand, we all know that Porsche’s historical significance doesn’t end with the transition to water-cooled cars; it just picks up where it left off and that’s pretty cool in itself too.

Celebrating the more modern side of the German automaker’s rich history is smart actually, because most people often forget that there are other sub segments in the Porsche community that are heavily overlooked, such as their SUV market, transaxle cars, big family wagons and even crossovers.

With that in mind, I’m curious to see what more can be done from here. I thought the Universal Studios show back in 2019 would be the Luftgekült to end all Luftgekülts, but the event as a series always has some sort of surprise element that is introduced with each and every episode, and Luft 9 certainly threw in a new plot twist.

Which begs the question, where do things go from here? We’ll have to see, but something tells me Luftgekült’s 10th show celebration cannot be missed.
